Just another gratitude post

Many people practice gratitude during November, and I think it’s great. It’s a helpful project to undertake, as it helps direct your thinking from negative to positive. When you make yourself think of something to be grateful for, you realize how much you have to be grateful for. It’s pretty neat.

I’m doing a challenge myself, and I write about it in the morning, which helps direct my thoughts for the day into positive ones. I start the day thinking about what I’m thankful for, and then I continue the day thinking of all that I’ve been blessed with. I like this challenge because it’s not just listing one thing (or five, ten, twenty things) you’re thankful for each day. There’s a word or phrase each day to guide your thinking (and writing). I like that. I like structure.

I’ll be writing about my thankfulness each day, but I won’t blog about it. That’s too much for me, I think.

I do want to share a gratitude for November, though. Just one.

I’m so thankful for Christmas Music.

Now that Halloween is over and November has arrived, I can blast my Christmas music everywhere I go. I love it. It’s beautiful, it’s festive, it’s fun, it makes me want to dance, and I don’t dance. At all. So that’s gotta show something.

Christmas is my favorite holiday, so really, I love all things Christmas: movies, sweaters, food, decorations, books, etc. I love it all, and I love that in November I can finally bury myself in Christmas. I’m hoping to go to Hobby Lobby this weekend just to look at all the Christmas (that’s my favorite store year round, but it’s so much better during Christmas). Hopefully they have lots of great sales, and hopefully my husband doesn’t get too upset when I come home with all the Christmas (he loves Christmas as much as I do, so I think I’ll be okay).

That’s all I have to say about that.

I do recommend that if you aren’t doing a gratitude challenge, you should. They are truly beneficial to your attitude.
